This facility was designed by architects John Calvin Stevens and his son John Howard Stevens. Each section of the facility was designed for a specific purpose. The building wing closest to Brighton Avenue contained the superintendent's office, stock room, lavatory, working space, and emergency sleeping quarters for employees. In the Stevens' building plan, a park was to be constructed in the space between the building and Brighton Avenue.
